Victim
    (July 18, 1956- )
    Resides in Birmingham, Alabama
    Author of 'Life's Been a Blast'
    Maimed by Eric Robert Rudolph in terrorist bombing of New Woman All Woman Healthcare Clinic (January 29, 1998)
    She was at the right place at the wrong time.
    She arrived at work too early.
    The culprit, Eric Rudolph, was a fugitive for 5 years.
    When he was captured, she fought for him to receive the death penalty.
    Reluctantly, she agreed for him to get a life sentence after his offer to reveal the location of 250 lbs. of explosives.
    As Mrs. Lyons opened the women's clinic, the bomb Rudolph set exploded, killing Officer Robert Sanderson and spraying her face and body with hundreds of nails and shrapnel.
    She lost an eye, endured over 20 surgeries and nails remain embedded in her legs.
    Upon Rudolph's apprehension, she said, 'You don't have to go to the Middle East to find terrorists. Rudolph is one of them.'
    When Rudolph admitted his guilt in court, he winked at prosecutors and offered no apology to his victims.
    In addressing the bomber in the courtroom, Mrs. Lyons called Eric Rudolph a coward, saying, 'When it was your turn to face death you weren't so brave again...' and 'You want to see a monster, all you have to do is look in the mirror.'
    She puts a human face on the violence of terrorism.
